Anthony Bourdain gets another word
The travel guide that Anthony Bourdain had been working on before his death will be made available to the public this year. The book, titled World Travel: An Irreverent Guide, was started by Bourdain and finished by colleague Laurie Woolever, who also co-authored his cookbook Appetites, according to People.
World Travel is a collection of Bourdain’s favorite places to visit, including advice on when to go, where to stay, and most importantly, what to eat once there. The guide is supplemented by anecdotes from friends, colleagues, family members, and people like legendary music producer Steve Albini.
People writes that in Bourdain’s lifetime, the New York native went through twelve passports, “visiting nearly 100 countries in the 250 days per year that he was on the road.” The book will go on sale October 13 but is currently available for pre-order.
